a small kid and doesn't go knowing that this is my guardian. the idea of a layoff says intersex athletes must reduce their testosterone if they want to continue competing in the female category of their events. perceive in sports talk courts despite ruling in favor of the idea of an a i have concerns about this it said the side effects of hormonal treatment experienced by individual athletes could with further evidence demonstrate the practical impossibility of compliance one boy is in no doubt for me i'm not going to take medication cause i'm not sick. and. even if we had to tear gas now to take medication those are chemicals that you're putting on your board off which you don't know at the end of it what to do affect you later. the intersex debate is complex mixing sporting questions with

those of science ethics and identity percent the heart of it's all athletes like one boy who simply just want to race. for more on the story i'd like to bring in bruce some money from where he is in bonn good to see you bruce so we know she won bronze at the 2016 olympics but what more can you tell us about muggeridge one voice at the lasix korea years christine. was born in central highlands that's the town of neary and she came into the limelight when she won a gold medal of the 24 teen idol if junior championships since then she's worked so hard to establish herself at the top level in fact if you ask me she comes 2nd after custis in india in the 800 metres world ok speaking off the main i think one thing that can be said is that south african authorities have really been garnering
7:35 pm
support behind her we know that the appeal that they announce is pretty much been headed up by the country's athletics federation but i wondered about whether the kenyan at the 6 bodies also supporting athletes like margaret and others in kenya. quite frankly not at all in fact last week a disk band dropped 2 sprinters from the team that was to represent kenya and they idea if one really is in japan because of having been found to have high levels of testosterone and that's why they had to be docked but speaking of support they've come out clearly to support or defend the idol every ruling of the court of arbitration in sports saying that i mean it's been a simmering issue even within their own athletes in kenya who've been complaining of unfair competition they say they are running against women who have high levels of testosterone and so they had to take the action if officials say that they
7:36 pm
didn't want to cause a scene traveling with 2 athletes who have high levels of this to stroll in and or so one of the official said that they hedged to. 12 would conflict with the world or at least body right how many kenyan athletes office intially affected by the new rules by the i. so far it hasn't been so clear but from these 3 who have been found having high levels of testosterone but it's. including one boy and 2 other sprinters were dropped just last week but it's a case that is being looked into especially after the new rules came into effect on may 8th that that little skinny body will still be checking into the athletes and trying to find out who else. is having high levels of testosterone and acting up on ok. thank you welcome.

our next story takes us to syria leone way of violence against women is endemic just a few months ago the country declared the soaring levels of rape and national emergency and try to put a stop to this physical and sexual violence has led some organizations try some unusual approaches we take a look at one that's getting men to go back to school to learn how to stop abusing their wives. didn't sound warm up in why did. i used to meet my wife i would come home late and bang on the door. and walk out without pause. we never sat together and talked there was no peace between us. is where time and time again he beat me for no apparent reason not just because he wants to boo talking openly about domestic violence has become commonplace and. ever since male villagers were sent back to school almost all of the husbands here regularly
7:38 pm
battered their wives just like omar us where i come. from many families life was tell. me on august he would. leave sometimes i go see her in a group with my uncle and i saw how he beat his wife he so i copied that he did your content as an adult i did the same to my wife and that will be our only death while my. nowadays ammara treats his wife with respect he helps with the housework and accompanies her to the doctor things he never would have dreamt of doing before instead he regularly got drunk and spent time with a girlfriend and beat his wife. but not as you might think. i lived in fear and i cried a lot i know a lot of software i couldn't leave him because i didn't want my children to suffer . it was he treated me so gourley and had
7:39 pm
a mistress in the group is a new. one and well that's good for. the father but that a mother and the others attend her twice a month. what are they going to do with the loss of. discussions can get he went teachers like bottom out of a nurse educate students on the necessity of changing their behavior one that's deeply rooted in sierra leone male dominated society. a man is the head of the family he's the breadwinner and has all the rights many see violence against women is a fact of life and poverty makes the situation worse some of them sometimes if men can't bring home any money then the women ask about food if they don't let up off the bat and the men get even angrier gets angry. also didn't have any money
7:40 pm
or a job and he beat his wife. now and husband school he learns about gender equality and that his wife is his partner not his property. and that to me. i mean i drank and smoked up and then i'd let my frustrations out on her do we if i came home later and my wife was there i would kick at the door and off she asked questions i would hit her. we took up be done. and his wife hala are carrying water home together. it looks harmonious but however remains traumatized by the experience of abuse. mosul has been helping out at home ever since he joined the husband school is still how it's wearing her memories. now going on when he started beating me i just used to hide but then it got so bad
7:41 pm
that i had to leave for a year now things have got better he doesn't beat me anymore and the children can finally attend school but he still gets in a bad mood and is threatening when he doesn't have money. violence and exploitation were a part of life during sierra leone's decade long brutal civil war in the 1990 s. the country passed a domestic violence law in 2007 punishing abuse by up to 2 years in jail but it's difficult to enforce women's rights even with a special police force designed to assist families and women in particular. women are not given the power in a little do business they don't have the source is like getting loans from bugs in all. being said you know that is something to do for this that i heard today about a 1000 men attend the 15 husbands schools in sierra leone when they're accompanied
7:42 pm
by their hardness the sessions are called how mama that's when debate can get heated and loud. but they are dealing with their problems openly and without violence. it would signal make out they want to get rich on the idea we might order if we set a good example to our children then perhaps the next generation won't be to it's women it is sissy you know you do so. it's difficult to change social structures. that have existed for centuries but here in the village. they're trying to do just that. and that is it for now from news africa as always you can catch all our stories and on our web site at face book page today will leave you with pictures off the kenyan olympian language walked away she's new rules regulating high levels of testosterone in women but as the signal the end of her current until next time i buy.
